Recognizing automobile salespeople turnover is a common and continuing problem in most dealerships, AutoHire911 has a passion to address this problem and assist dealerships in recruiting and training potential candidates that are a "fit" for sales, not "just put the blindfold on and hope for the best." It all starts with the selection process of the candidate, then the proper training and finally and most important, the support and engagement of those candidates by management.
As all dealerships internet business becomes a larger part of their overall sales business, it is important to recruit and train those candidates that embrace technology yet have the skills necessary to build value and "close the deal".
It is AutoHire911’s goal to prepare this new generation of salespeople.
